The second Pop That was an even bigger party than the first – with Levins, Shantan and special guest Sampology all playing a mix of rap and exciting club sounds.
The crowd warmed up to Shantan’s wild cub remixes of new rap and and r&b, lost their minds to Sampology’s set which featured everything from juke, dancehall and trap, then danced as the sun rose and Levins finished the night with a mix of all things mellow.
Pop That will return later in the year with more DJs pushing an eclectic mix of club sounds. Stay tuned!
Before rapping and leading a Michael Jackson karaoke sesh in front of today’s youth at the Enmore, Mac Miller rolled through the FBi Studio for a quick chat and a cypher.
Flanked by an entourage of 6, the Pittsburg MC hit us with a hard hitting interview then rounded it off with an awkward-starting-obsenity-filled freestyle. Don’t believe me? Peep the link below.
We also did a phoner with DJ Shortee Blitz. The KISS FM turntablist is kicking off his Australian tour and showed us a thing or two while providing a dope ass 30min set. That too, is also at the link below.

This post is all about me getting a bit nostalgic about growing up and being a certified music nerd. I really just wanted an outlet to post some regular tunes that were significant to me back then, some embarrassing some not so much, non genre specific and i guess a little outlook into some of the stuff i have grown up on and what has maybe shaped some of the stuff i play out and vibe on now. I will try and give a little history on each of the tunes that were no doubt staples on my sisters walkman in primary school or my dodgy not so anti shock discman in high school. I never messed with that futuristic minidisc biz.I will try my best to hit up some friends and foes, other dj’s, producers and champion nerds to get involved on the concept and if all goes well hopefully we can make it a regular thing on the blog with guests breaking down a few of their primary or high school anthems.
Wow this popped up the other day and i lost my shit. Year 9 massive, me and a matey Gus who peeps now may know as Skryptcha used to trade C.D’s in high school and he put me onto Pun, Organized Konfusion, Atmosphere and so many other staples that shaped my tastes for years to come. The Ramon Morris horn line flip gives me shivers every time. This Tune still holds weight today more than 10 years later. Certified Boricua anthem and given the chance you will definitely hear me play this out.
MP3: Roger & Zapp- So Ruff, So Tuff
How is it possible not to freak of this tune, i remember being super young and hearing or seeing this on some strange movie i have no recollection of except this song. I waited till the credits rolled and they have all the songs from the movie, i wrote down every song getting my VCR pause game on. This was Pre Internet days so you couldn’t google shit, it took me a few more years to figure out what it actually was and i freaked when i did. Has been a staple in my crates ever since i started playing out. West coast whip anthem that never fails to get even the stiffest folks nodding their heads.
MP3: Cj Bolland- Suger Is Sweeter (Armand’s Drum And Bass Edit)
Seriously i can’t even remember how old i was when i heard this, maybe 10 or 11 but i remember it being on the wildfm 3 cd and just always having it on repeat because i vibed on it so much. Shameless cheese that I’m sure will turn the nose up of any true UK Garage heads. No doubt this track was big back then, and to see Jackmaster and Oneman on the boileroom live stream drop this to a full tent at the Notting Hill Carnival last year was both mind blowing and nostalgic. Check the footage for yourself. Here
It is debatable whether he is the best to ever do it, but he has definitely been consistent and outlasted many of his peers. He has come a long way from crack cocaine raps to becoming a respectable member of the establishment rubbing shoulders with dignitaries such as Prince Charles and President Obama. In my opinion a key part of his success has been a good ear for hip hop production. With so many hits and so many sweet as soul samples, Naiki’s tribute mashing up Jay-Z classics and the original samples was as killer as predicted.

Mixtape Mondays with the bros from Paper Plane Project. These dudes have just dropped a solid mix paying homage to the electric piano. The mix focuses on current international soul/jazz-infused hip hop and beats all made using their favourite instrument. I remember the first time PPP came through Stolen Records with hype brewing around their first album, since then they have continued to push and evolve their own unique sound, Finishing off a second instant classic album called Miles Apart. Which by the way you can cop on their bandcamp here MILES APART.
